In July of last year, I was working on my first (um… and only) article for All In Magazine and I asked you for advice on the Best sbo Poker Rooms in Vegas. Thanks to that entry, I rank third in Google for searches for Vegas’ Best Poker Rooms.
Unfortunately, I don’t provide any valuable information there, and I’d like to correct that by really giving my readers what they want. That’s where you come in. Now’s your chance for a guest column on Up For Poker. Write a poker room review and email it to me. I’ll post the best reviews. And if you have a blog of your own, I’ll link back to your blog with your review.
First, here’s a shot from my friends at Poker Images showing the…errr…glamorous life of a pro blogger. Incidentally, around midnight every night, I’d replace those Pellegrino bottles with Monaco beer. It made for a better picture, but no one was around to shoot it.
Poker Images has quite a good business going. They go to tournaments and shoot every player, then sell the shots screen printed onto fine canvas. They also have a great gallery and collection of stock footage. I haven’t licensed this photo, so go make good by taking a look at their stuff. The owner has licensed some good older galleries with some great stuff in it. For other news from across the pond, my write up from Vienna and Monte Carlo can be found below.
In other news, had I not taken this new gig, I would be on the Party Million cruise right now. I’m pleased to report that private Live Journal poker blogger Terrence Chan is doing quite well. I’m sad to report that another poker blogger we all know is no longer playing. So, bloggers are 50-50 right now.
Um…I can’t be the first poker blogger to notice this.
I think the WPBT needs to form a concensus on whether we approve and then act accordingly.
Comments are open for discussion on the topic.
It’s not everyday that a poker blogger makes the final table of one of the world’s premier poker events, but that’s exactly what Ben “Milky Bar Kid” Grundy did in Monte Carlo at the European Poker Tour Championship.
And that is more than enough to get you a spot in “The Nuts.” Go check him and tell him congratulations!
